Game 48 Thread: May 26 vs. Cardinals, 1p

Shelby Miller (5-3, 1.74 ERA) vs. Clayton Kershaw (5-2, 1.35 ERA)

Amazingly, Dodgers have a chance to take the series with a win today. Because in LA sports nothing is ever easy, the speculation about Mattingly's future, the club house vibe with Ethier and Kemp (Kemp especially after being double switched yesterday, causing him visible consternation) continues to play out publicly.

Nonetheless, we should cherish these moments, because it's the last time for the next 24 hours that the team won't be wearing those hideous digi-camo, Padres-on-home game-Sunday-looking caps that they'll break out tomorrow for Memorial Day against that Orange County team.

Interesting note: Dodgers last six games have produced a loss, a win, a loss, a win, a loss, and a win. Here's to breaking that streak today.

Per @BillShaikin: Kershaw vs Miller today: 1st matchup of P w ERA under 1.75 so late in season since Scott Erickson vs Tom Gorman in 1991

I hope you're getting all the Vin-ettes from today, Orel. Vinny is en fuego!

Orel said...

I can't watch right now! Should I DVR?

Steve Sax said...

Dee Gordon, who got his first hit since 1838 yesterday, still sucks.

Dusty Baker said...

@Orel

Absolutely. I'm out of town or I would be doing it. Vin is just nailing it today. Bob Gibson win-loss story, background on sanitaries, etc.

St. Louis is a dump. So there.

With Kemp benched, I don't have to groan when he comes to the plate.

One of my happinesses with this season is that we've finally stopped the "God Bless America" during the 7th inning stretch (because, WHY DON'T WE HAVE A PATRIOTIC SONG AT EVERY INNING BREAK (JUST LIKE THE RED SOX (WHO ARE AWESOME))).

Now we have to wear stupid camo hats. I hate everyone.

BJ Killeen said...

I was so sure of us choking, I went for a pedicure in the 7th...
